Acerca de


Superkilen, a kilometer-long band wedging through one of the most ethnically diverse and socially challenged neighborhoods in Denmark, celebrates the dawn of a new type of public space. This large-scale public project recipient of a 2013 AIA Award for Regional and Urban Design is the result of an invitational competition led by the city of Copenhagen and the Realdania Foundation. Bjarke Ingels award-winning architecture firm BIG, landscape architecture studio Topotek 1, and high-profile artist collective Superflex were chosen to create an urban space with a strong local identity. The project was conceived as a giant exhibition space of urban best practices for public art and design. The Superkilen (literally, super wedge ) is defined on the ground by three color-coded areas, each offering distinctive
public programs and a strong aesthetic identity in shades of hot pink, neon orange and red. In order to celebrate the neighborhood s rich multicultural heritage, the park s design scheme integrates in true postmodern fashion
a collection of globally found objects from the 60 home countries of the surrounding inhabitants. The grounds of the Superkilen are peppered with exercise gear from Muscle Beach, Los Angeles; sewage drains from Israel; palm trees from China; and flashing neon signs from Qatar and Russia, just for a start. Superkilen is a conceptual vehicle for integration, enforcing local sentiments of ownership while turning public participation into the driving force behind its design process. This gorgeous full-color document of that project features photography from renowned architectural image-maker Iwan Baan and book design by Rasmus Koch.

About the Author:

BIG has repeatedly attracted public attention and triggered political debate with projects such as a three-kilometerlong wall of social housing wrapped around a park of soccer fields in Copenhagen, the proposal to consolidate all of Denmark's harbor activities in a star-shaped superharbor along the bridge between Denmark and Germany and recently by proposing to move Denmark's national symbol, the Little Mermaid, to China for six months as part of the Danish Pavilion for the Shanghai World Expo in 2010 and getting to do just that!
